  1. Not sure but think Miss Potts is 4th from the left in the front row, not fifth. She was my neighbour in Norton. A lovely woman. I believe that her sister Bette was also a teacher in Norton, and that their father was a builder who built houses in the Norton area. Can anyone enlighten me?

  2. I attended William Newton between 1961 and 1965 and remember Miss Potts, Miss Thompson and the lovely Miss Spencer (English and History). As I’ve said many times, these wonderful teachers did not deserve the troublesome pupil I was. However, I eventually did ok becoming a social worker in later life. I’m sure they would be surprised to know this as I think they thought I was a lost cause!
